The Berry Ricky

With end of summer lingering (I’m optimistic) and the transition to fall upon us, this is a great time to enjoy late summer seasonal berries. This drink uses raspberries, blackberries, lime and mint, add some Cointreau, soda water and voila! No fancy cocktail tools, no shaking, just a little stirring of ingredients and served with ice!

  • 2 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • 2 Blackberries
  • 2 Raspberries
  • 5 Mint Leaves
  • 3-4 oz Club Soda (I used a sparkling water like Perrier)


  • Muddle the berries and mint in the bottom of a glass.
  • Add Cointreau and fresh lime juice with ice, and top with sparkling water.
    Stir briefly. Garnish with a berry and mint sprig.
